Law Allows Women to Make Their Abusers Pay in Court

CONFIDENTIAL TO MY IRISH FRIENDS: On this St. Patrick's Day, may I extend this old Gaelic blessing:

May those who love us, love us,

And those who don't love us,

May God turn their hearts.

And if he doesn't turn their hearts,

May he turn their ankles,

So we'll know them by their limping.
